Again, hindsight is what it is, but he went out at the time and got the No 1 GM on everyone's list. You don't do that if your intent is just to make money.
I suspect if things don't turn around quickly, he'll force Pioli out after the year, or force him to go get a QB...
You see and that's the part that scares me. Yes this organization's #1 problem is the unwillingness to draft a QB but that's not the only problem.
Romeo Crennel is painfully outmatched as a HC. We all can see he's not the long term answer there right? So what are we going to do? Fire him after our rookie QB's 1st season? Great. Then there's another new system to learn.
No it would be best off to start fresh. Pioli hasn't earned the right to hire his 3rd HC & pick our next QB. Particularly after believing Cassel is the guy.
